02.17.17 – Rosemary House by Kohn Shnier Architects featured in Azure Magazine’s 2017 House Issue

The Rosemary House designed by Kohn Shnier Architects — the firm of Associate Professor John Shnier — was one of five residential projects featured in Azure Magazine’s Annual House Issue. Blending in with its pseudo-Tudor style neighbours, Rosemary House is innovative in its flexible programming and sensitive use of materials.

“Rosemary House encourages modern family living that is interactive, open to choices and growth, [which is achieved with] spaces that are zoned, yet not necessarily enclosed,” describes Kohn Shnier Architects. “An innovative use of custom solid limestone masonry is tonally sympathetic with other homes, yet demonstrates how contemporary design can contribute difference.”
